March Job Opportunities

The Albany Theatre Trust’s vision is “to promote well-being through Arts for Life”. This vision, backed by rigorous and prudent financial and organisation management, has recently gained the endorsement of Coventry City Council. The Trust now has the opportunity to re-develop the theatre and create new facilities, including a studio theatre, in an additional 10,500 square feet of newly acquired space.

The Trust is not embarking on this new development in isolation. Arts for Life is set against the background of Coventry’s emerging ten year arts strategy, and the City’s bid to become UK City of Culture in 2021.

Operations Manager

To help us make the most of this new development we are now seeking to appoint an Operations Manager. We are looking for a person who has the experience, confidence and ability to organise and manage our growing operation. The successful candidate must be willing and able to work with a diverse group of volunteers and use available resources, including paid staff, to build an operations team. Strong commercial skills are essential.

Whilst relevant experience and a track record of success are also essential, it is most important that we appoint the right person. The successful candidate will be an ambitious, competent, multi-skilled, resilient and well-organised manager with entrepreneurial flair and demonstrable experience. A passionate commitment to the Albany Theatre’s Arts for Life vision is essential. The Albany is a dynamic, challenging environment and this is the start of an exciting cultural development. This is a key role that offers a significant career opportunity to that right person.
